I would say that your little equations show some anecdotal evidence of 
"waste."  "Hoarding" generally carries implications about intent which 
you're not, and probably can't, demonstrate.

"When you can measure what you are speaking about, and express it in
numbers, you know something about it; but when you cannot measure it,
when you cannot express it in numbers, your knowledge is of a meagre and
unsatisfactory kind; it may be the beginning of knowledge, but you have
scarcely, in your thoughts, advanced to the state of science, whatever the matter may be." ~Lord Kelvin
